Technique: Wire wrapping a stone
Difficulty Level: Beginner
New to wireworking? This is the perfect class for you! Beginner classes will teach you all the basics; no previous experience is necessary. You’ll begin to familiarize yourself with how to use wireworking tools. These classes are small in size so you’ll get plenty of teacher time.

Materials & Supplies Needed (approximate)
- 21 gauge square craft wire
- 18 gauge half-round craft wire
- 8-10mm beads (5-6 pieces)
- 6mm beads (10-12 pieces)
The square wire must fit through the chosen beads, so avoid something with a very small hole like pearls.

- Wire cutters
- Chain or flat nose pliers
- Round nose pliers
- Painter or masking tape & thin marker
- Optional: nylon jaw pliers for straightening wire
If you have any of these tools already, please bring them with you, however we also will have them available for sale that day if you need them. We kindly ask that you use beads purchased at our store when in our beading room.
